The simple answer is it depends on the person. There is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ schedule, although the internet may say otherwise. The truth is that those suggestions may give us what we want to hear, but are oftentimes misleading or inaccurate. At Point of Return, we assess each person individually so we can meet their needs entirely and find the best fit to assist in Alprazolam withdrawal or withdrawal from other types of benzodiazepines.
Many factors can affect a person’s rate of tapering off of benzodiazepines. For instance, most commonly people are taking other medications which can directly affect benzodiazepine functioning or the benzodiazepine may be affecting those medications. Other things to consider are how long benzodiazepines had been taken beforehand, the health challenges of the person, and even outside factors, like stress. All these varying components can determine the rate of someone tapering off of benzodiazepines.
With all these factors in mind, Point of Return looks at each case individually and creates a schedule specifically for what is best fit for each client. We have used hundreds of different schedules fashioned for a wide variety of clients so they can achieve the best success with Alprazolam withdrawal. Some people need to taper very slowly, while others can be quicker, but we don’t focus on trying to get the quickest results. We want a lasting impact.
Point of Return uses very calming supplements in our benzodiazepine withdrawal treatment programs so that recovery rates can be quicker than a person can achieve without them. Expert guidance and all natural nutraceuticals are two of the most important benefits experienced with Point of Return’s withdrawal programs.
Our specific priority with benzodiazepine withdrawal is working on healing GABA receptors that send chemical messages to the brain. As someone is tapering off the drug, we want the body to heal and adjust. We’ve discovered the main issue with tapering benzodiazepines is that the person’s focus is often only on getting off the drug, and they don’t realize their GABA receptors have been modified.
Many people will get off one drug, but then have serious side effects, like not sleeping, anxiety or depression, because their receptors have not healed properly. They then turn to a different drug to fix the symptoms they experience without fixing the root of the problem.
Overall, tapering rates of benzodiazepines is different for each person. At Point of Return we consider all factors and find the best format and schedule of Benzodiazepine Withdrawal treatment for our clients so they can fully recover from addiction and receive the care they need. We take high priority in making sure healing is happening to the GABA as clients taper off so that once they come off they don't reinstate.
